Student Learning Outcomes
- To demonstrate analytic and quantitative competency in core subject content.
- To demonstrate a sound conceptual understanding of the theoretical foundations of mathematics.
- To use problem solving skills, mathematical modeling techniques and technology to solve real world problems.
- To demonstrate proficiency in oral and written communication of mathematics.
Students must earn a grade of ‘C’ or better in all major and cognate courses, including MATH 160 - Calculus I (4 credits) , MATH 161 - Calculus II (4 credits) , and MATH 242 /MATH 242L Modeling for Scientists I/Laboratory.
The major in applied mathematics develops a high degree of mathematical proficiency and is designed to apply mathematical knowledge to the solution of real world problems. The major prepares students for a broad range of graduate programs. Students who successfully complete the applied mathematics degree will be competitive for careers in actuarial sciences, business, cryptology, government, industry, manufacturing and design, mathematical modeling, management, medicine, statistics, teaching, and space technology.
